Problem

United Nations abrogation of responsibility

Incidence:

In Somalia, during the worst of the civil war and famine, relief agencies and their workers risked their lives to distribute food. Some were killed and many were wounded. In the case of Bosnia, and despite UN Security Council resolutions, intergovernmental promises to deliver resources to civilian populations remained unfulfilled. The delivery of supplies was left largely to humanitarian agencies. Relief workers had to cross military lines, negotiate checkpoints, and do everything necessary to the delivery of supplies.
